Bunch of pics…it’s been awhile

Haven’t really been posting regularly for quite some time. But here are some pics for posterity, including one from PetSmart.

This is reaching back aways, but a good friend from high school played on the Team Canada Women’s Ice Hockey team for 2 Olympics. These are pics from the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City – the year that both the Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey teams won!

Women’s sports has come a long way in the past 30-some years. When I was a teen, there was next to no future for women in sports, particularly team sports. Vicky is now the Head Coach for U of T’s Women’s Hockey.

Friends from CMHA.

         

–>  AUGUSTINE, I didn’t include your pic to respect your privacy.  🙂

 

Much loved Smoky, the rescue cat I got for my friend Aaron in 2015.

This is Professor Li, who is 106-years old in this picture, below. She is related to the last emperor of China and was born and raised in the Forbidden City. She is highly regarded for all the books she has written on the Philology of the Chinese language. She also raised 9 children by herself (!!) and was invited to Canada in the 1950’s at the invitation of the United Nations to help with the Chinese Pin Yin at the Toronto Reference Library (though she speaks to me in English). The government is currently doing a study on her because of her strong genes, obvious longevity, and Manchurian ancestry (with gray eyes).

 

Don and I are coming up to our 3rd anniversary this month, yet I have never posted his pic here. I try to be mindful about how people may feel about being seen on a seemingly stigmatized site, such as this one.

   

Andy Capp, an old cartoon favourite.
